Art & Fish

These two weeks have been full of field trips and school events for the kids.  It started with Native Americans, became art, throw in some Salmon, and finish with a May Day parade tomorrow.  I might be a bit out of order, but it is time to start showing our creative side:

Piper's art walk at her preschool.  Her teacher set up their art around the play yard for the parents to peruse.  Absolutely adorable.

Bowl Making

I am now a bowl maker.  These are so much fun to make.

Soule Mama inspired me.

Fridge Wha?

I flew back from California only to have my husband wave goodbye as he hopped on a plane to work from California.  He was gone so I reached for that before bed, naughty snack.  I thought there was a box of chocolates and when I turned it over to read the label I screamed.

In my fridge?

You never know what husbands are going to do while you are away.

This is cut and pasted from my Facebook page:

I just got home from a very important trip back to California. I got to show off my new tattoo to my bestest friend in the world. Nick is fighting back colon cancer and has his own cancer logo. A few of us are now branded with his image. His pink mohawk (many times other colors) is gone for now, but I am looking forward to a day when it grows back. One of his students designed the logo and I will wear it proudly forever on. My dream is to be in a nursing home someday where I can roll up next to Nick in my wheelchair and yell at him for how stupid I look at 89 with a tattoo of him on my neck.

Spring Break Learning

I am kind of a kids' book junkie right now.
These are fabulous and I can't wait to learn alongside my kids.

Piper sat on my lap and held the book open for me to read.

Reade had a practice day at a prospective elementary school and he and Blake got to make balloon lungs.  Reade is showing off where his would go.

Happy Easter 2015

We had a great Easter with a bunch of family and friends.  We went from having no family in town to having a guest list of: grandparents, nephew, nephew's girlfriend and her family, cousins who just moved near Portland, and Piper's friend from school and her dad.  I am waiting for David's set of pictures and will post them soon.

Saturday was an Easter egg hunt at the local community center.  We all rode bikes over and enjoyed the hunt.  We saw some familiar faces and it feels so nice to finally run into people you know at functions like these.
